    Helter ....Yeah

So much for verses and choruses.  The rest are pretty much the same,
except that the rest of the verses hit the A chord diagramG MajorG chord a little sooner
(at the beginning of the third line of the verse).

Here's the guitar solo in the middle:

    A chord diagramE MajorE                          A chord diagramA majorA                      A chord diagramE MajorE

    'Cos here she comes
                                  A chord diagramA majorA                                    A chord diagramE MajorE

-|------------------b(14)12---------------b(14)12b(14)12-----------12-------
-|---------------------------14----------------------------------------14~--
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Later, there's a neat riff in one of the last verses.  I think it
comes right after "will you won't you want me to make you" or something
like that.  This is a cool riff with that looonnnng slide.

-|--12--15b(17)--b(17)15--12------12----------------------------------------
-|----------------------------15------15\10-----10b(12)--b(12)10--8---------
-|-------------------------------------------9-----------------------7--9---
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------



As the song fades into the first ending, there are some nice bend releases,
while the lyrics repeat "coming down fast":

-|--b(17)15------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------b(17)15---------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------b(16)14------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------b(14)12---------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------b(14)12------------------------
-|---------------------------------------------------------------------

Later, there's a whole lot of Hendrix-like guitar noise.
